Grab A Button

Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side. Let your families be families of love and peace and happiness. Gather your children around you and have your family home evenings, teach your children the ways of the Lord, read to them from the scriptures, and let them come to know the great truths of the eternal gospel as set forth in these words of the Almighty.

Well It's been quite sometime since I posted. I realize I should be doing better at this. I check my blog each day to see if I have posted. Nothing. I guess I will break down and share another post with you.

Well Sunday we spoke in church as a Family. It is always such a neat time for me to watch my kids and see what a testimony they have at such a young age. I also love to hear "My Dear Hubby" speak in a setting like this. He is such a great man and I am so lucky to have him. I definately feel blessed. Our topic was on Gratitude and after all of us gave our talks I have to say that we all have much to be grateful for. Perhaps Jackson's talk put it the simplest. This is a little poem he read.

I’m thankful for …
Two eyes that see,
Good food to eat,
Two ears that hear,
Two walking feet,
Two busy hands,
My family,
A beautiful world God made for me!


(I'm sure when Jackson grows up he will see just how much we are all so thankful..)

As Christmas draws near, My wish is that all of us could just think of all the wonderful things we have around us. I am so thankful for family, a great bunch of friends, If we weren't surrounded by people who truly cared about us, I think life would be a lot more difficult. I think it would be a sad place. I'm thankful for Food on my table each day. A house to live in. I am thankful for a place to work. Yes I am newly employed at the Elementary school!! I have so much to be thankful for. I know that its hard for us not to get caught up in the gift giving, but I want to challenge each of you this year to buy a little less and spend a little more time with those you love.

Well I'm know I have rambled a little in this post, but I do that from time to time. I'm sorry. I hope to have more exciting things next time. Maybe some pictures and stuff.. Have a Great Week!!

Your talks were all great. I am grateful to have you for my next door neighbor. We just need to spend some time sitting out front to chat and watch the kids play.
